Holland Park Extension

JBA were approached to propose concepts for a staged master plan for the refurbishment and extension of an existing detached dwelling in the south Brisbane suburb of Holland Park.  The selected design has the flexibility to be easily adapted from a single three bedroom house into a co-housing scheme which comprises three separate dwellings, each of which enjoys its own private outdoor deck.

The existing house plan is substantially reconfigured to create a primary north-facing public outdoor area at the heart of the scheme, which incorporates several heavily landscaped concrete terraces. This space is unified with the main living area by means of both low level planters and a high level deep overhead concrete brise soleil.
